Tall, shiny, detailed centerpiece by the Victorian silversmith Middletown that would have been used to grace the dining table.

A tall heavy metal framework has been silver-plated. It has a central well for holding a faceted clear glass dish. The outer mouth rim has a repousse design of birds, urns and flowers. The outer edge is pierced with a flared metal design and the central well has a round central depression that holds the glass dish. The glass dish was made for the piece and fits snugly. The glass is flinty with a floral design and a central faceted medallion. The bowl edge has a slightly faceted cut. The central bowl rests on a tall central pedestal that is secured by a round base. The piece is shiny and still has a fair amount of silver.

There is a circular mark under the base with a set of scales. Around the scales reads “MIDDLETOWN PLATE CO TRIPLE PLATE” and the number “620”.

MEASUREMENTS

9” (22.9 cm) diameter x 8 ½” (21.6 cm) tall. Weighs 3 lbs 1.0 oz (1385 g)

CONDITION

The piece has no cracks, chips, breaks or dents, and rests very securely. The piece has some silver but the silver is worn in places. The glass bowl has tiny nicks on the mouth rim. The piece looks very good for the age.

A great Victorian centerpiece that will be useful and highly decorative. I can see flowers or fruit gracing your dining table with this centerpiece. It will give an addition of elegance and richness.
